Christmas Kickstart Challenge #2 - Bundle Up!

Hi Everyone,

after Muse Christmas Visions ended, I was on the look-out for a new Christmas challenge I can paly along throughout the year, to lessen the stress in November and December. I think I found one! It is the Christmas Kickstart Challenge 

The current theme is "Bundle up"

   Christmas Kickstart Challenge

I took an ancient Hero Arts set and made the background with an iStencil. I love this one, one of my favorites! It is called Winter Striped Tree

I first sponged pencil dust, but it looked a bit anemic, so I shifted the stencil and sponged in green. Colored the deer with Inktense. Added Stickles.

The stitching is a CUTplorations die. The sentiment is lazily made with Washi tape......a Christmas gift from my blogging friend Gundi from Papierelle

Linking up with:

Jingle Belles - look what Santa brought me (Washi tape)
ABC Christmas challenge - anything goes

Love this card, Cornelia. That stencil .....wow. And two sponged colours - looks amazing. The deer looks quirky enough to be around those trees, too. Thank you for sharing, and joining us at ABC Christmas Challenge. :) Lynda

What a fun card. First of all I love that stencil. That is such a fantastic look. And, I love the cute deer image you added to it as well. He is so darling in front of the stenciled design.
